I replaced a standard HD box with this client. I really like the fact that I can access all the features of the Genie from this device, including DVR recordings.
I also like how small it is. And it has a built-in RF antenna for use with the RF remote, which I like using.
The only downside, and it is somewhat expected, is that every command is delayed from when you push the remote button, which is a little annoying. Also, programming is about 4 seconds delayed from the Genie. This doesn't matter to me, but some people say it is bad if you have 2 TVs in the same room, like a game room.
I bought this a few months ago and I believe it was sold from a different vendor,so my experience might have been a little different than others. My unit actually came with a remote (this one specifically says it doesn't) and I was quoted $200 from direct TV to have it installed. I bought the unit for $100 and that's all that it cost me (plus another $6 per month for the additional TV). It took a while to set it up and I spent a fair amount of time on the phone with Direct TV but I didn't have to have someone come out to install it (I was able to confirm that the outlet in my bedroom was indeed connected to the dish) and it was worth the $100 I saved. Maybe 1 or 2 times have I had any issues with it and doing a hard reset of both my HR 34 Genie and the C31 has resolved the issue other than that it's worked perfectly. All the content available on our main HR34 is available on the C31. As long as you don't mind spending 30 min on the phone with direct TV I recommend but this as an...
Worked exactly as expected. came in original packaging with HDMI cable and remote. After I set it up, I called DirecTV and it took about 5 minutes to get the unit registered and running. If you call DirecTV and order this and have them do the install it's $199. This is a much better deal but you should know that even though you "buy" this on amazon, it becomes the property of DirecTV when you activate it.
